There's a lot of interest in learning some form of machine learning/predictive analytics or AI these days, but knowing where to start can be difficult. I recommend learning TensorFlow on Colab (along with NumPy and pandas), because TensorFlow has support for developing many standard AI/ML models quickly and Colab gives us a user-friendly online environment for experimenting.
You influence people and you manipulate bits. If you do it right, they will deliver what you expect. Even though there is a vast difference in how leadership and development work - and you can presume that based on the disparity of meaning between "influence" and "manipulation" - some software development principles serve as a great guide to better leadership.
